  1. The Needle has been FOUND! 3688

    I know of at least one instance where this was done and the mechanic came out the next morning and went to work without completing the job. Ruined the engine. Better disconnect the battery if you are going to do this or sit the oil in the cab to remind you that the oil is out of the engine. I'm getting forgetful myself. We have big white plastic tags with, "No Oil Do Not Start", written on them that we hang on the steering wheel or the key, pretty hard to miss.
  2. Learning alot, but want more info

    What are the major QC problems with the 86 series? We have a 686 with an M&W Turbo that's been trouble free except one broken gear in the rear end, about 20 years ago. The brakes are bit grabby in reverse but that's about it. It's been repainted but never overhauled, it has 4400 and some hours on it. Well it's been almost a year and still no answer.

    This thread is an excellent read. Somehow it has eluded me. I don't post here a lot, so much has happened to me and my family over past year and half. I really enjoyed this entire thread just now. I like reading stories like this if anyone else has more info. on the subject please clue us in. Thanks!
